U.S. – Professional tennis player Martina Navratilova recently declared that she is cancer free. As reported by People.com, Navratilova shared the news with PEOPLE months after revealing her breast cancer diagnosis.
Navratilova, 53, is quoted in the report as stating of her health, “Technically I was cancer free after the lumpectomy in March… But then I had radiation to make sure that it killed any cancer cells that were still hovering about.”
Navratilova, who is now an AARP health and fitness ambassador and recently spoke about breast cancer at an event for the organization, is further quoted as stating, “I really didn’t talk much about breast cancer before I had it… Now, I’m approached by women and we share our stories. It’s encouraging to see that there’s life after cancer.”
